Buddleia Birthday Card

I saw the Making Cards Vintage Collection magazine when I was on holiday and loved the freebie papers - they are so pretty.  I made this quick card for a friend's birthday.

I cut a square of dark pink Moondust card slightly smaller than my card blank and attached a square of buddleia backing paper with the flowers in the top left.   I tied a pink spot ribbon around the right side of the card and tied a bow around the ribbon.   This was then attached to the front of my card blank.  The sentiment is from Hobby Art's General Greetings set and I used Versafine Imperial Purple ink to stamp it onto a piece of the pink backing paper.   This was attached to dark pink card before being attached to the card with foam pads.  To finish, I put a spot of Diamond Stickles in the centres of each of the buddleia flowers to add a little sparkle.
